Common Questions About Invisalign Braces
Invisalign is a revolutionary treatment to straighten teeth. Invisalign braces are custom made for every user. The treatment consists of a number of clear aligner trays, which when worn consistently through two-week intervals will straighten your teeth. The aligner trays are made from clear plastic and unlike metal braces, they are more comfortable, smooth, and unnoticeable.
Why choose Invisalign?
There are many options for straightening teeth, but none of them offer the comfort, confidence, and convenience of Invisalign. These invisible braces have minimal impact on your daily life. They are very comfortable which means you can easily wear them for 20-22 hours every day.
You can also indulge in any sport you like without your Invisalign braces interfering with it. Cleaning your Invisalign aligners is also very simple – you just have to brush them and later rinse them. With metal braces, your doctor may ask you to avoid some types of foods, but with Invisalign you do not have to face this problem.
How Does Invisalign Work?
The first step is to speak to an Invisalign Service Provider. Dr. Stuart Levy’s Center for Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is a Invisalign Service Provider in Cincinnati, Ohio. Dr. Levy will discuss the treatment plan and cost with you. The information he gives you will help you decide whether to go for the treatment or not. He will also determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you or if any more dental procedures need to be done.
After you have given your consent, he will take pictures, impressions, and x- rays of your teeth to send to Invisalign. At the company, a 3-D image will be created from the details. Dr. Levy will then use it to create a treatment plan which will map out how your teeth will need to be moved and he will tell you how much time it will take for the process. In adults and teen treatment the process can range from a few months to under two years.
Based on the treatment plan our Cincinnati Invisalign provider creates for you, the company will fashion a set of custom made aligners. You can wear them throughout the day and when it is time to eat, brush or drink, you can just remove them. With each succeeding set of aligners, your teeth will gently slip into place.
Traditional braces vs. Invisalign braces
Invisalign braces do not have any metal brackets, which means there are no wires to attach and tighten. Twice a month, you will have to replace your old Invisalign braces with new ones until your teeth have attained the desired alignment.
Invisalign braces can treat a number of problems with overbites, spacing, underbites, and teeth crowding. After putting on Invisalign braces, you can eat all types of foods. The device can be removed at any time. Invisalign braces are virtually invisible clear brace system so people will not know that you are straightening your teeth. With Invisalign braces, you can floss and brush your teeth more efficiently, which translates into better oral care.
The plastic is made out of smooth and comfortable material and does not irritate your gums or teeth. Nor does it cause any other type of pain associated with the wires and metal brackets in other braces. With Invisalign braces, you have to visit your dentist once every four/six weeks only. Moreover, if you lose or break your Invisalign braces, the company will replace it up to six times for free.
